Say Monaco, and you instantly think of the old town, the Place du Casino, its Michelin-starred restaurants, its unrivalled parties…and of course, its casinos! With every passing year, the Principality’s reputation as the finest gaming destination on the French Riviera grows that little bit more. And for good reason too: the selection of games is simply remarkable, and the surroundings stunning. Read on to find out just why the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer casinos are so magical...
Life in Monaco comes with the luxury of being able to enjoy terraces all year round, and Monaco’s casinos are no exception, offering up gorgeous surroundings for a spot of outdoor gaming. At the Casino Café de Paris, one of the largest on the French Riviera, the two smoking terraces are home to almost 150 slot machines that are playable from 10:00 a.m. Or, if al fresco electronic roulette sounds like your idea of fun, check out the live gaming corner. Clients with a Gold My Monte-Carlo card also get special access to a VIP area out on the terrace, complete with high-payout video poker consoles.
A matter of metres away – and still in the fabulous surroundings of the Place du Casino – the Casino de Monte-Carlo is also a heavy hitter when it comes to outdoor gaming. In fact, you could be forgiven for thinking that one of its finest, most prestigious gaming rooms simply extends out to sit under the stars… On the other side of the sublime mosaic bar, the magic continues: out on the terraces, tables where you can indulge in all the fun of gaming await, complete with superb views of the Mediterranean. With its bar, terrace and indoor area, the Salle Blanche is reserved for Gold, Platinum and Private My Monte-Carlo card holders. It is, quite simply, the very quintessence of gaming in the most stunning spot around.
Treat yourself to the thrill of an adventure in the Salle Europe at the Casino de Monte-Carlo, which has served as the setting for the exploits of England’s most famous secret agent on many an occasion… Right at the heart of the Casino, it also plays host to all kinds of black-jack, roulette, craps and poker games. At the bar, the menu is a star-studded selection of fine champagne, spirits and signature cocktails to the rhythm of live music. And then, of course, there are the gilded surroundings and countless stunning frescoes, not to mention the Resort’s pride and joy: its splendid gaming tables.
